Embedding Images in eBay

Embedding Images in eBay

Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but I haven't found it.

For years I have embedded Dropbox images in eBay listings. Under the old system, the link created by Dropbox looked like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/3fdhrtekku1nne8/AP_Zofia_White_Dress.jpg?dl=0

This code would then embed the image in a description:
<img src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/3fdhrtekku1nne8/AP_Zofia_White_Dress.jpg?raw=1" border="0" width="626px">

However, new images uploaded to Dropbox generate a link that looks like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/o8m8ndhzdhu5d72x84m2h/AP_Mirrabella_ShortKimono.jpg?rlkey=0iqsx5rs7c0...

This code now just generates a broken link:

<img src="https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/o8m8ndhzdhu5d72x84m2h/AP_Mirrabella_ShortKimono.jpg?rlkey=0iqsx5rs7c0..." border="0" width="626px"><div style="text-align: center;"></div>

Obviously something with the rlkey system isn't working with eBay, but what is the solution? Thanks.

Hm..🤔 @rkanyok, nothing generates broken link, but you have broken it. As mentioned in all directions, all you need to do is just replace "dl=0" to "raw=1", nothing more! 🙂 If you take a look deeper on your link, it look much different than the original one and definitely has more changes (more than needed that breaks the link).

Maybe you want to try following: 

<img src="https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/o8m8ndhzdhu5d72x84m2h/AP_Mirrabella_ShortKimono.jpg?rlkey=0iqsx5rs7c0vsj5kz78hlc9wp&st=nupsa3yn&raw=1" border="0" width="626px">

😉

Hope this helps.
